Adafruit offers cool embroidered achievement badges for electronics, science, and engineering. They believe everyone should be rewarded for learning a useful skill, and then be encouraged to continue. A badge displayed on a jacket or shirt is an excellent way to show and share.
The badges are designed for use in classrooms, workshops, Maker Faires, TechShops, Hackerspaces, Makerspaces, and around the world to encourage and reward beginner roboticists on their skill-building journey.
ARDUINO! For the youngster who has learned how to program and use the Arduino Microcontroller board. The Arduino logo is used with permission, so this is an official Arduino badge! A portion of the sale of each badge goes to Arduino.cc. Each is skillfully designed and sturdily made to last a lifetime. The backing is iron-on, but can also be sewn on. All badges are made in the USA.
There is also a Microcontroller Skill Badge.

Adafruit’s embroidered badges are manufactured in partnership with AMBRO Manufacturing, located in New Jersey, USA. AMBRO has been a successful family owned and operated business since 1990 that celebrates open-source with Adafruit Industries. AMBRO uses non-toxic, soy-based, water-soluble and environmentally friendly printing supplies, threads, and more when possible. The company’s equipment runs on solar power, so the wonderful things AMBRO and Adafruit have created together are made with the sun! AMBRO Manufacturing was recognized by Impressions Magazine, a leading trade publication in the garment printing and embroidery business, in an article highlighting the company and their commitment to environmentally focused manufacturing practices.
